The project

ALGAE4A-B aspires to foster both the European capacity building and the strategic objectives of EU Blue Growth and Marine Biotechnology to harness the untapped potential of Europe's seas and coasts for training and sustainable growth.



In order to carry out the project, the consortium of 3 companies (from Spain and Greece) and 3 research centres (Spain, France and Portugal) and 1 Univiersity (Greece) has been created.

The project

ALGAE4A-B (Algae For Aquaculture and Beauty) project seeks to exploit the microalgae diversity, as a source for state of the art high-added-value biomolecules in aquaculture and cosmetics.

The diversification of microalgae biomass production towards two independent applications will allow the microalgae industry to gain access to alternative markets in an uncertain, highly competitive and fast changing commercial environment.
